minister benjamin netanyahu. cnn's john king is in jerusalem this morning. john, this is president obama's first trip to israel. how delicate, how pivotal is this visit? >> reporter: well, carol, it is fascinating. i've been here in the past with president clinton, with president george w. bush, now president obama. in the past the israeli-palestinian conflict is always at the top of the agenda but given the event in this complicated neighborhood that is now more complicated and confused than ever, the israeli-palestinian conflict is down on the list. the president wants to share information and get information from his israeli counterparts about what's going on in syria. did the government in syria use chemical weapons against its own people. that's a big question. obviously the nuclear showdown with iran. the presidentister wants assurance if that diplomacy doesn't bear fruit that the president of the united states is prepared to put the military option on the table. and, yes, the president did say he wants to have peace in the holy land and he will make that a priority. no accident th
netanyahu and president obama who have notoriously frosty relationship. there on the tarmac during the welcome ceremony, prime minister netanyahu, we lost track how many times he said thank you to the united states, thank you to president obama. even at one time called him barack. this comes after a few months ago prime minister netanyahu made it very clear he prefered governor romney back in the 2012 election. however, prime minister netanyahu made it clear though that israel, quote, remained in the present of their right to defend themselves which is clearly talking about an attack on iran which is not something that president obama wanted to see. president obama who at times has been seen a little bit soft on iran for his part tried to make it seem that the united states would always have israel's back. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel because it is in our fundamental national security interests to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger. it makes us both more prosperous, and it make the world a better place. >> reporter: president obama has a
than two hours ago and the israeli president and prime minister binyamin netanyahu met president obama at the airport. lots of handshaking and photo ops and a friendly scene but polls show president obama is deeply unpopular with many israelis and they want reassurances the united states is serious about their defense. here is what the president said just moments ago. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel because it is in our fundamental national security interests to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger. it makes us both more prosperous. >> thank you, mr. president. thank you, america. thank you for what you are. thank you for what you do. >> he wants president obama to feel at home on this trip. a side note to a serious trip, the israeli embassy released this cartoon video of the meeting set to the golden girl's theme song and the lyrics say "thank you for being a friend." president obama is on the way to jerusalem if meetings with israeli leaders and he will be in the region through saturday. >> we just a knew days away from a supreme court hague on

, and the substantive conversation that president obama and prime minister netanyahu will have in private. >> megyn: only 10% of the israeli public, according to the latest polls, has a favorable opinion of our president. just 10% say they have a favorable opinion of him. that's a surprising number and it's not exactly the group before whom he's used to speaking. >> right. well, i'd like to know who those 10% are. i mean, i think it's clear that president obama is the most hostile president that america's had since the formation of israel in 1948 and i think the message he's going to be delivering to prime minister netanyahu, don't use preemptive military force against iran's nuclear weapons program and be prepared to make more concessions to the palestinians, isn't a message which if it gets out into the general circulation is going to increase that 10% number. >> how can he do that? this is an issue during the election and an issue that people want to know about all the time he's been president. where do you stand when it comes to israel. do you support israel, do you support a possible strike by
to leave for a three day visit to the middle east with lowered specifications. obama will depart on wednesday for israel where he hopes to smooth over relations with the prime minister binyamin netanyahu and will visit the wet bank. he will only spend a few hours meeting with palestinians. the latest poll published by israeli newspaper finds 38 percent define president obama's attitude to israel as "hostile." only ten percent view him as favorable. >> coming up the confusion that sent a car into a north bay store. >> the parking changes along a popular san francisco street that >> a massive wildfire continues to rage this morning in tennessee in the smoky mountains destroying dozens of cabins and threatening a neighborhood. 35 cabins have burned to the ground as crews from 25 different agencies battle the 300-acre fire that broke out yesterday afternoon. cabins have been evacuated and homeowners living on the other side of a ridge have been told to prepare to evacuate. no injuries have been reportd and no estimate on when the fire could be maintained. >> f.a.a. officials are inve
obama visited israel and the territories as president. both prime minister netanyahu and president obama are starting new terms. there are major issues to be discussed. the white house is calling this a broad strategic conversation to focus on syria, iran and the israeli palestinian peace process. of course, three of the most pressing issues for these two countries today. >> if this is more about symbolism what progress can we expect from the president's meetings with the israelis and the palestinians? >> well of the three issue that will be discussed on this trip this is the one where the least progress is expected to be made. expectations have really been lowered by the white house. they made it very clear, since the trip was announced they aren't coming here with any grand plan, any new vision to get this peace process back on track. it hasn't budged in more than two years. and it will be discussed at the president's meetings with prime minister netanyahu and palestinian president mahmoud abbas. none of these three sides are optimistic at this point that
netanyahu and called the u.s. and the jewish state unbreakable. mr. obama also covered big foreign policy issues including the iranian threat and the civil war in syria. cnn's john king is live in jerusalem with the latest. john, all seemed very maty and chummy. but underneath all that, what is the reality of the state of the relationship between america and israel right now? >> reporter: there's no question, piers, obvious to the world, not just to these two leaders, they've had a frosty and unfriendly relationship. president obama is left of center, believes the prime minister netanyahu has said some things he finds insulting or didn't like. prime minister netanyahu right of center, supported romney in the last presidential election, has at times stopped at president obama, my language, doesn't get it. both of these guys just won elections. they are in the words of a top american official the other day, stuck with each other. and it's very crystal clear today, both of them have decided to try to turn a new page. are they going to be best friends, i think not. but are they going to be be
. >> in washington, it is no secret that obama does not have a good relationship with israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. even if they put on a united front in public, as here in washington last year. >> they have fundamentally different views of how to advance peace in the area. the president started off by pressuring israel to make concessions, and israel, understandably, resisted and resented, and it has been like that for the last four years, unfortunately. >> israel looks to the u.s. to safeguard its very existence. republicans are quick to point out that while obama visited egypt during his first term, he never went to israel. they accuse the president of pandering more to the muslim world than to washington's key ally, but not all analysts agree. emma this administration has been a very close ally in terms of security cooperation, as well as strategic dialogue. the israelis and americans are very closely coordinated on important issues, although there are disagreements. >> obama will seek to resolve the peace process between israelis and palestinians during his visit, but back
with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who is worried serious chemical weapons could wind up in the hands of terrorists or anti israeli extremists like hezbollah. mr. obama is stressing he is skeptical that they used chemical weapons and cautioned that the u.s. is still investigating claims that syrian president use them, the president a bushel when israeli reporter suggested that the u.s. has been sitting on its hands. >> is incorrect for you to say that we have been nothing. we have helped to mobilize the isolation of the regime internationally. we have supported and recognized the opposition. >> except the president for said that in 85 days were numbered 19 days ago. last summer he warned of potential u.s. force. >> are red line for us is, we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. that would change my calculus. >> reporter: back in washington a top republican charge the administration's policy has been addressed. >> the obama administration saw a reformer. once the revolt started, they backed u.n. diplomacy. then they bet on moscow
relationship, reminded me, president obama is left of center. president netanyahu is right of center. they have disagreements over policy and different political philosophies. the official said they're stuck with each other. they're both beginning new terms in office. they both have a huge focus on iran. they both have to worry about syria. they're both wondering as the world is about what happens with this air spring. this president would like to have the peace process resume. we talk about reviving the peace process. there is no process right now. it has collapsed. in any relationship, both sides insist in those four years despite all the disagreements and many more than you mention that the working relationship is always pretty good. when they have to do business, they put the personal stuff aside and they do business. but as you well know, wolf, you know this region as well as anyone, if you know each other and trust each other and have a personal bond, it is easier, when you get to the hard stuff. israelis talk about where is bill clinton? he came here four times as president. he was so de
at the end of the week to try to lay the groundwork with benjamin netanyahu and israel to start some talks. president obama is here to, as he said, listen. he said in the press conference yesterday that his main role in this visit is to just listen to the palestinians. it's a lesson he learned from his mom, he said, because the palestinian palestinians often feel that they are not heard. and so he really wants to see what kind of mood there is now and what it would take to really prod some sort of discussion to come into action. and, you know, they felt a little bit neglected and it's the president's time to remind him that even though he has been working very closely with the israelis, he has not forgotten that he wants to create some sort of open space for peace talks to come into fruition with secretary kerry now at the state department. >> very interesting you bring up secretary kerry. a second ago, jess, we saw president obama greeting secretary of state john kerry on the tarmac there. the secretary of state arrived in the region before the president. he will be in the region again ju

approach the united states should be pursuing and what we should be paying atntion to, obama's claman a piece is the only path to true security. of course, objective of against iran syria benjamin netanyahu and the ceo of ge be international. a fox use digital politics editor. gentlemen,hank you for being with us. if i may, i want to start with you. benjamin nanyahu could not have been too pleased with whoever else happened. president obama was speaking rather aggressively to the oplef israel over the head of benjamin netanyahu. >> well, a lot of these visits are public diplomacy. i will say that based upon what the president haaaid over the past few days there is a hopeful be in this cynical me. i hope that the president has been seen as of late both the nsa intelligence rorts as follows until it -- israeli intelligence reports and has come to the conclusion that they are a serious threat. if you read between the lines the sounds as if he is given the green light to attack whenever they deem necessary. that is the hopeful. the cynical, says something else based upon the past four yea
. but contrary to the apparent and uncharacteristic chumminess with prime minister netanyahu yesterday, mr. obama and abbas displayed an understated- business like-tone in a brief press conference. the president denounced the morning's rocket attack and the group that rules in gaza. >> hamas cares more about enforcing its own rigid dogmas than allowing palestinians to live freely; and because too often it focuses on tearing israel down rather than building palestine up. >> warner: on the issue at hand, the president did say his administration was committed to give the moribund peace process another try, and he urged the palestinians to do the same. >> my argument is even though but it is israel's continued expansion of jewish settlements on the west bank that have been a stumbling block to revived peace negotiations. a halt to such construction is a palestinian pre-condition for re-starting talks. mr. obama had joined the call in 2009, but hasn't pushed since. today abbas seemed to reaffirm that insistence, though he didn't use the word condition. >> ( translated ): it is the duty of the israeli
in the polls there has been low and prime minister netanyahu could use obama as a kind of foil for the last four years. i think he clearly achieved that. he had to re-establish the two state solution. democratic israel and democratic palestines and he did not -- he succeeded in doing that. what is still open is can he get these talks going again? richard is right. the short term is about iran and syria, but we have to make some progress and kerry stayed behind trying to get that going. >> more from you two as we move on to other topics later on in the program. thank you both. >>> we now want to turn to the debate over gun safety. mayor michael bloomberg of new york has announce d a big push o put pressure on lawmakers who will will vote on new gun control measures in congress. i discuss that and some other topics including the middle east when i sat down with him this weekend in new york. mr. mayor, welcome back to the program. >> thank you for having me. >> always good to have you. big week in the gun debate. i'll get to that in just a minute. let me start with the president's significant

, former senator kerry. what progress did we make? >> well, you know, my view is that obama went because he had a problem n. in the first administration, he couldn't figure out whether he wanted to pressure netanyahu or pannedder to him? now he has clearly made a decision to try to create a functional partnership. i think that's really important because as things stand now the, if barack obama doesn't want to be the guy on whose watch iran gets the nuclear weapon or the two-state solution expire, he is going to have to find a way to deal effectively and work cooperatively with the new government and with the prime minister. >> jamie: what about the secretary of state? >> you know, it's been my view from the very beginning that barack obama's the most controlling foreign policy president since richard nixon. hillary clinton was given very true truly cons quential issues to manage. kerry may be in a better situation because it's legacy time and obama is trying to figure out what do todo on the domestic side. he might turn john kerry, who is quite capable, into a manager in chief on the israel

's a response in a sense to president obama and prime minister netanyahu talking about all options being on the table with respect to iran. i think his message is that, well, iran has options too, and iran will use those options if they're attacked, and that's attacking israel. jenna: michael, we often think about iran, its nuclear program as a strictly iran/israel issue. the president took that on. but i want to share a comment that the ayatollah said today to his people. he said: israel is too small to be called an enemy, and the united states is the center of animusty towards the -- animosity towards the islamic republic. israel doesn't matter, the ayatollah said, it's the united states that does. what does that mean? >> well, look, i think you hear this theme in his remarks quite a bit, that -- you know, remember, the united states is considered the great satan by iran's clerical leaders even though, frankly, the iranian people have a higher regard for the united states. and you hear frequently that israel's really just doing the bidding of the united states. that's how the regime se

obama, through arm twisting, convinced netanyahu to call turkey and apologize for a deadly raid against a turkish ship. that will be key in moving forward with issues like syria and tries to reopen the peace process in the middle east. so i think white house officials are feeling good about the trip. the big question, if you talk to experts in the region, is what is president obama going to do now to try to restart peace talks? of course, secretary of state kerry is really taking the lead on that. to what extent will president obama engage in that and get involved? that's what experts around the region will be watching. overall, they believe it's a success. alex? >> something else that could be deemed successful, the first budget in four years after the all nighter friday into saturday, what's the reaction there at the white house? >> final votes came in at 5:00 a.m. the white house thinks it's a good thing, that bill that passed through the senate really echos what president obama would like to see in terms of deficit reduction but the problem, of course, is when you match up is the se
